Think about all the life changing moments in your life. What was the common thread ? Were those events and moments characteristically similar ? Is it always random or can you engineer these wonderful disruptive moments in your life ?
The common characteristic among all life changing episodes is its impact - the power to create awareness. The ability to launch your consciousness into another level altogether. Things suddenly become clearer and the mind seeks clarity more than anything on the path of mastery.
In most cases, these moments seem utterly random. But now that you're aware of the 'awareness' factor, maybe, you can work towards it deliberately.
Seek awareness. Set yourself free.
